Elevate exchanges:


The Elevate Exchanges are our flagship, hybrid events focused on our three key pillars: Sustainability, Innovation and Community.

We bring together experts from a range of sectors to share advice, insights and spark debate.

This half day event takes place on Manchester Central's open day, giving you the opportunity to experience their incredible event spaces.

The Innovation Exchange explores what it means to be an innovative business. 

Does it happen by accident or design? 

Is it all about new products or should we focus on innovative processes? 

What innovation is taking place across the North West?

Join us to find out the answers to these questions and more!
